Birds, Butterflies, & Buttons

This background piece was one inch away from being dumped in the trash bin. It was the last sheet used to scoop up left over paint on my gel press printing plate. I thought it was too sporadic to serve as a background. Still, I held onto it. Yup, I used it on a challenge that called for a "shabby" card. I think it works. What do you think?

Backgrounds created with a gel press printing plate are one of a kind. Even if I apply the same color of ink, the backgrounds will be different. That is the fun of gel press printing.

Thank you for stopping by here and taking a peek. I appreciate your time and comments. So, let me know your thoughts.
